  •  This is what he said last week (10+ / 0-)

    "I'd like to hear more about just what happened and Mr. Geithner will need to give a full explanation at his confirmation hearing next week," Sen. Russ Feingold said in a statement. "But it's certainly troubling that the person who is about to head up the department that oversees the Internal Revenue Service has had these tax problems."

    I don't know about anything else.

    What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.

      at his confirmation -- didn't he!? or ... well ... answering ANY questions!? ... didn't he

      jesus fucking christ -- if his hearing had ANY bearing on ANY one's vote -- he shouldn't have been confirmed -- he was a total fucking embarrassment ...

      •  I thought the "answers" were a joke (5+ / 0-)

        And given his "answers" to the questions, I can understand why someone would not vote for him.  

        To me, that's why the central premise of this diary is in error.  This vote was not driven by ideology, or if it was (as say, a pretext, which we have no way of knowing) there were other concerns that would have justified Senator Feingold's vote.

        I actually disagree with Senator Feingold's position on ideology and executive appointments, but this is a far cry from "hyocrisy."

        What has been is what will be, and what has been done is what will be done, and there is nothing new under the sun.
